"Career Of Evil" as written by and Bouchard/smith....
I plot your rubric scarab, I steal your satellite
I want your wife to be my baby tonight
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil

Pay me I'll be your surgeon, I'd like to pick your brains
Capture you, Inject you, leave you kneeling in the rain
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil

I'd like your blue eyed horseshoe, I'd like your emerald horny toad
I'd like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road

And then I'd spend your ransom money, but still I'd keep your sheep
I'd peel the mask your wearing, and then rob you of your sleep
I choose to steal what you chose to show
And you know I will not apologize
Your mine for the taking
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil
I'm making a career of evil

    General CommentIt is about Blue Oyster Cult's job. They have the Career of Evil. ;)

    General CommentPatti Smith wrote the lyrics, as she also did on some songs from Agents of Fortune and Tyranny & Mutation. I'm pretty sure most of the songs from the album, save Subhuman and Astronomy, weren't written with the Imaginos idea in mind, but it sort of relates anyway.

    General CommentCompare this to Steely Dan's "Green Earrings". This is much more sinister, but the parallels are interesting.
